I totally had every intention of introducing you to Elle in the days following her arrival, but I honestly didn’t want to take my eyes off of her. And as it turns out, recovering from a c-section and then a tooth infection 3 days after giving birth is well – for the birds.
Elle was breech and due to my elevated blood pressure and the insane swelling that had settled on me from the waist down, my doctor decided to schedule a c-section 2 weeks early.
Elle made her appearance on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 9:24AM weighing in at 8 pounds 7 ounces and a whopping 22.5 inches long.
She’s perfection and it’s hard for Eric and I to imagine our lives before her.
In the days before Elle’s birth, my mom (Granny) tried to explain the emotion and amount of love that parents experience after having a child, but she stopped short, paused and simply said that it’s indescribable and we couldn’t agree more.
I want to thank those you that have reached out to say congratulations through social media and email. We’re soaking it all in – every single sleepless second and couldn’t be happier or more in love with our baby girl.
